Well there's only one photoshop. I think you mean image editing software. I think Adobe Photoshop is pretty easy. I learned how to use it on my own, and it wasn't too difficult. Only problem is the price.

Fireworks is just like Photoshop but not as powerful, it's quicker and easier.

Fireworks is actually more for vector graphics, but does have options for bitmap images. Photoshop is mainly bitmap.

i'm sure there are plenty of online tutorials that will teach you how to use photoshop, or probably most any program for that matter. i know i've seen a couple on youtube..i'm about to start learning myself when i get some free time. i've had photoshop CS3 on my computer forever, just never really bothered doing anything major with it

well, i've used photoshop cs2, cs3, and cs4.
they're all pretty simple once you get the
basics. you know? i'd definitely say that
it's workable. coz i just sat there one day
and started clicking things. i was eventually
able to work the basic functions.

Since day 1, I've been using the old school Paint Shop Pro v9. Haha. Still satisfies to this day. Although it is best I upgrade. I just don't have the time to learn new programs.

I used to work with Paint Shop Pro back in the day. Started on 8, I think. My computer used to freeze with Photoshop so I had to stick with Pain Shop, haha. Memories... :lol: :lol:
